More Like D&ADon't


More Like D&ADon't

OK, Here are the important details: Every year art schools from all over the world participate in a design competition called D&AD. The way it works in my school is that all of 2nd and 3rd year pick a brief from the competition, design a solution and get graded by the tutors. Then the top 20% are chosen to represent the university on the competition and get a chance to compete against the rest of the world. I don't know why, but my work was chosen along with about 30 others.

That was the easy part.

With 12 hour notice I had to change parts of my project, prepare 4 boards and upload my work to the D&AD website. There is no circle of hell I haven't visited, not a torture in the Chinese horror book I haven't endured in my quest to submit my work. From non co-operative computers to unattainable codes, today was the day I almost day purely of stress. I eventually finished the uploading precess just in time to not be able to play Xbox with friends. I have never been less happy to win something.
